manual propane valve


I used a standard off the shelf 90 degree, gas petcock on the low pressure side of the propane regulator. By mounting the valve with the stem horizontal (and facing into the bulkhead  it was to pass through) it was  simple  to adapt a valve handle extention into the cabin to make it all work smoothly.

 When the whale is in the 'diving' position the gas is 'on'; horizontal is off. The position of whale is easily determined by a glance from anywhere within the main cabin and thus easily checked. I like the non-electrical dependent valve and we've had no problem with it since installed in '78.
